What Shall Be
A prophetic mindset doesn’t merely consider present circumstances but looks into the future to see what shall be. When Isaiah prophesied the birth of JESUS, he did not say, “For unto us a child shall be born.” He said, “For unto us a child IS born.” (Isa.9:6) He spoke in the prophetic perfect tense which declares an action already completed. His prophetic mindset was deep within him and came out of his mouth declaring that what Jehovah intended would, indeed, come to pass (Rom.4:21). The prophet got into agreement with God in spite of present circumstances (Rom.10:16; 2K.6:15-17). Only in agreement with God (the mindset of the One Who stands above it all), and His purposes for the advancing of His Kingdom, is there hope that overcomes the impossibility of the challenges of a generation. All those who are born again of THE Prophet have some degree of THE Prophet in them and so, are prophetic.
